” Chloë taught me so much while training with her in Chamonix; to shorten my stride, which can be counter intuitive for a former track athlete ; to broaden my downhill supports and keep a good speed, a faster cadence while climbing ; to navigate effectively in tight downhill turns and on very technical terrain. She has a gift to make us effective and faster in a few minutes! I did a 20 mile run in the Tetons when I got back and I did it in a personal best of about 30 minutes and felt less tired! I have run professionally for over ten years, so I have a good perspective on training, exercise physiology and a good coach, Chloë clearly has incredible knowledge at all levels of training, biomechanics, dryland, prevention and management of road & trail running injuries. ”
Anne-Marie Letko, American professional long-distance runner & two time Olympian
